    I joined weight watchers for first time late week I’ve basically sortedlunch and dinner and getting good numbers I’m now just trying to sort breakfast as it’s usually between 10-11. I have oats so simple sachet porridge no sugar or anything with 180ml milk. Is there any other breakfast that are as filling but nice to eat as I do enjoy breakfast time

    Simplicity it key as busy mummy mornings before work

    Thanks in advance

    I had Scrambled eggs (2eggs) with Cheese and spring onion this morning - relative low carb. I grated and chop the cheese last night and I scramble the eggs in the microwave.

    Other mornings I have Full fat Greek Yoghurt and blueberries/strawberries (about 150g combined weight)- higher carbs then scrambeld eggs but nice. I tend to wash and chop the berries and weigh the yoghurt the night before

    On a weekend IF I have breakfast, as I sometimes miss it, I'll have a fry up - eggs, bacon, mushrooms - On a weekend time is not in as short supply.

    I am not sure how these will fit with Weight watchers.

    Oats and milk are quite carby hence your higher numbers at breakfast unfortunately. I eat coconut ‘porridge’ it’s not real porridge so it’s low carb. (around 4g per serving) I eat it with strawberries and cream. It has six ingredients, you just chuck them all in a saucepan and stir over a low heat, just takes a few minutes and is delicious and filling. Here’s the recipe:
